Preaching and teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ is absolutely the MOST important thing we can do while here on this earth.
It is through the preaching of the Gospel that people of all nations hear, believe, and come to a saving knowledge of Jesus.
Paul said in Romans 10:14-15,
How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent?
Someone asked me the other day, "Why are you engaged in two mission efforts... Mission Marsh Harbour and Restoration Radio?" My answer is simple... because it's my job. As a preacher and teacher of the Gospel, I am compelled to preach and teach... but also, because I am a Christian, I am obligated to share the Gospel with the lost. To do less is to be un-Christ-like and to lack love for the lost.
For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel. I Corinthians 9:16
In today's modern computerized, mechanized, technological world we often here of "Multi-Tasking." Most people know what that means... but some might need it defined. Multi-Tasking is the ability of a computer to do more than one thing at a time. It can also be used of people and therefore,... I am multi-tasking.
Considering the massive population of the world, I believe we MUST pursue every avenue possible to proclaim the message of Christ. The current population of this world is almost 7.5 Billion people. Each and every one of those people will step into eternity... and most will do so unprepared.
Mission Marsh Harbour is an up-close, personal, one-on-one mission where the teaching and the preaching of the Gospel takes place on a weekly basis. The population of Abaco is officially 17 thousand. The unofficial population is estimated at 22 thousand counting illegal immigrants. Those 22 thousand souls are important... more weighty than 22 thousand worlds filled with wealth untold;
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:26
So the mission here at Marsh Harbour is of great importance from heaven's point of view... but when I have it within my ability to reach out to potentially billions of souls beyond this place, the answer is so loud and clear to my conscience, it is deafening,... I must. I MUST. I WILL.
Forbes Magazine reports that within 2 years, 3.5 Billion people will be online via smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktop computers, and a dozens of other smart devices. Think about that... 3.5 BILLION people. Some estimate that Internet Radio will have 2 billion monthly listeners within 10 years.
When you consider how many denominational believers are worldwide and need clear undenominational New Testament teaching, not to mention, the un-churched, unbelievers, and the myriads of others caught up in World Religions that lead billions away from Christ, the need becomes overwhelmingly obvious!
Already, though Restoration Radio has only been on air a few weeks, 22 countries have tuned in... Germany and The United Kingdom have listened for almost 12,000 minutes, (that's almost 200 hours for those who do not have a calculator handy). We are still in the process of submitting the station to many worldwide directories and as we do, our listenership will continue to grow and many more will hear the pure undenominational Gospel of Jesus Christ.
David Caskey, a well-known missionary to the both the Bahamas and the States, has just been added to the broadcast, with numerous sermons coming online from him within the next few weeks. Having years of experience in Broadcast Radio, he is extremely excited about Restoration Radio due to its potential to broadcast to the entire planet. We are happy to have him come on-board.
Please pray about both Mission Marsh Harbour and Restoration Radio... both are God's will because God is "not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance," II Peter 3:9.
So, my mission here in Marsh Harbour continues to grow and has become a Multi-tasking Mission locally and worldwide.
